1. Sinan Antoon, The Corpse Washer - Review later, but damn if I weren't moved by this short novel.
2. Chimamanda Adichie, Americanah - Review later, but this will not leave you feeling indifferent.
3. William Gass, Middle C - Still haven't been able to organize my thoughts to write a coherent review.
4. Karen Joy Fowler, We are all Completely Beside Ourselves - a definite must-read.
5. J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fall of Arthur - Much better than LotR in terms of writing achievement.
6. José Ovejero, La invención del amor - Possible review later. 2013 Premio Alfaguara winner.
7. Nihad Sirees, The Silence and the Roar - might take a second read for its full effect to kick in.
8. Kate Atkinson, Life After Life - Might get around to reviewing this one day.
9. Helene Wecker, The Golem and the Jinni - Might review this later as well.
10. Ron Currie, Jr., Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles - Clever yet honest. An intriguing combination in a metanarrative.
11. Ismail Kadare, The Fall of the Stone City - Kadare still mining gold from a rich vein of tragic history.
12. Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being - Touching. Already wrote a short review.
13. Jim Gavin, Middle Man - One of the two best short story collections read this year.
14. Jamaica Kincaid, See Now Then - Been too long since a Kincaid story. Already reviewed.
15. Angélica Gorodischer, Trafalgar - Interesting set of interconnected stories. Already reviewed.
16. Karen Russell, Vampires in the Lemon Grove - Another of the top collections released this year. Already reviewed.
17. (At this point I should note that positions below #1 are very fluid and might change with further consideration) George Saunders, Tenth of December: Stories - Moving. Already reviewed.
18. Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Debating still whether or not this is "good" or "mediocre" Gaiman.
19. Thomas Maltman, Little Wolves - Maybe the best werewolf novel of 2013 that I've finished to date?
20. Yoko Ogawa, Revenge - Very good story collection. Did intend to review it, but haven't yet.
21. Ildefonso Falcones, La reina descalza - Third historical novel of his, third that I (mostly) liked.
OK, which of these have you heard about before this post? That's the important question, not whether or not you liked any on this list.
